We loved our stay at Villa Menaggio. It was perfect for our family vacation of three generations. The Villa Menaggio was very clean and spacious. The location was perfect. We enjoyed being able to walk into town for the ferry and loved being right on the waterfront with the beautiful views. We also enjoyed the family swimming pools that are within walking distance. Not having to rent a car for our vacation was an added bonus. Even the supermarket was within walking distance. It was a pleasure to have our hosts, Martina and Walter on site. They assisted us with any minor problems and shared with us the history of their lovely home. They were very gracious hosts in every way.
Thank you to all of your staff for their assistance in choosing Villa Menaggio. Lydia was especially helpful with supplying information and I appreciate her prompt and courteous responses to all of my questions. Danilo made arrangements for a wonderful chef to cook a delicious meal for us in the Villa. Since we were traveling with small children, this was a special treat. It was a very lovely evening and one of the highlights of our trip. A special thank you to Harold for helping us with transporting luggage to the ferry on the morning of our departure. I highly recommend Happy Holiday Homes for renting a vacation villa. Everything was as promised and they were truly a pleasure to do business with.
We hope to one day come back and visit the beautiful Lake Como region.
As the private gates to this villa open and invite you in there is a feeling of home. The large wooden doors, beautiful gardens, large and fun kitchen to cook in and the views from the bedrooms overlooking Lake Como one way and you turn to look at the mountains is wonderful.
We were well cared for here and the location is perfect. Walk out onto the road and there is the Lake with a small patio. Walk left to the small and quait bar with great gelato or further down to the lido and restaurant. Walk right and you are 10 minutes from central Mennagio full of shop and restaurants. Say hello to everyone on the way who is happy to help with directions, touring and renting of boats and kayaks.
The first night we drove 5 minutes (15 min walk) to the grocery store and butcher and cooked up a family meal with our good friends. The patio is a wonderful place to gather to eat and share.
It is a family friendly place as well with an elevator as we had one person with a cane. We also found it useful on nights where we enjoyed the wine a little too much.
Note: thw shower is downstairs and you share space with the manager's family (the staircase) as they live on site. They are lovely people and we rarely saw them.
Enhanced our experience in Italy and would return here.
